Reviews of Carven pour Homme

Extremely refined reinterpretation (in a specifically soft and minimalistic key) of a classic green powerhouse formula which is in here cleaned up and reduced in notes but not in complexity and variegation of nuances (green, floral, spicy-hesperidic, woody aromatic). One of the best violet leaves-application around, in this case something green, velvety and spicy in to a extremely sophisticated mild-aromatic way. Carven Homme conjugates a freshly manly, fruity and aromatic classic vibe a la Grey Flannel with a more modern, soft, suedish and subtle floral presence. Violet is extremely classy (a la Canali Men), discreet, softly green (with a wonderful sage and probably coriander) and slightly soapy (but never harsh or overly spicy and fresh). Probably hints of musky suede, iris, mild well calibrated spices and soft tonka provide such a subtle spicy-floral spark (somewhat close to perfection). Dry down is perfectly laced up by sandalwood and hints of aromatic exotic vetiver, finally providing a gentle virile woody warmth. A perfect choice for the modern man with a classic sober soul, healthy values and a confident temperament.

My favorite violet leaf scent behind Fahrenheit. This fills the void between Fahrenheit and Grey Flannel. When I want to be loud, brash or just make a statement I reach for Fahrenheit, but this is the refined and reserved version of a violet leaf scent, without being Grey Flannel. Not that GF is bad but this is just more refined. Also, since it has a small sweetness to it, it's more modern than both, once again filling a void between the two extremes.

The opening is spicy, with some refined, powdery sweetness. In the drydown, the violet leaf is definitely the star but not loud. It actually starts to feel like Green Irish Tweed a little. Projects for 4-5 hours and then it's gone.

Violet, thou art my nemesis. Both violet and violet leaf (the latter prominent here) are among my least favourite notes in perfumery. So, from the very beginning CPH is on to a loser with me. (This is perhaps more reflected on "that other site" than here.)

The opening smells rather too much like our current household washing liquid for clothes; it's that kind of floral. As it develops, the wood and spices come to the party, and I even get some fairly pleasant wafts on uncovered skin, but I never entirely lose the feeling that a smug housewife should be pressing me to her nose and grinning, as per the washing liquid advertisements. I can do without that kind of freshness. I'll pass on this one.

Additional: it was liked by the family.

Additional additional: looking at the sponsored ads here, I find £70 to be very poor value for 100ml of CPH. In fact, I find £35 to be poor value given what alternatives there are on the market.

Just beautiful this.

It is an old school power house fragrance that has been to modern chic school. The combo isn't stunning but rather very pleasing to those who enjoy that old school masculine unapologetic jus. It is similar in effect to what RL did with the original Polo to get Modern Reserve. By itself it may be repulsive to the noses brought up on Cool Water. For me, this is bottle worthy. And yes, I LOVE Grey Flannel.

It just barely gets a thumb up from me. Very simple and straightforward type of scent, if you really like violet leaf then this is for you.

A little too strong of a violet leaf note for me, this is the kind of scent for everyday simple activities. Spring time comes to mind when I get a whiff of this fragrance. Good projection and still going strong after 4 hours.

I've read a review saying it reminds them of Irish Spring soap, I agree. If you're on a first date or special event this will probably stay on the shelf

A sweeter, more mainstream version of Grey Flannel. The violet leaf is done in too sweet a manner, losing its classy distinctive features. The spices are also sweet and undistinguished. I don't care for this scent at all.
